The Goals of Total Ministry flow from the theological assumptions above.
~ that Total Ministry development will build on the best of a congregation's history, respecting its experience in its context
~ that each Total Ministry congregation will be equipped to meet its basic ministry needs from among its members, while enjoying the consultation and support of a Regional Missioner and/or other ministry professional(s), and working interdependently with other congregations of the cluster and the Diocese
~ that each Total Ministry congregation will call a ministry team gifted in sharing tasks, committed to strengthening the ministry of all the members, and leading in envisioning opportunities for mission and for learning
~ that each Total Ministry team will show commitment to lifelong learning and ongoing development, including the calling and incorporating of new members
~ that Total Ministry congregations will show other congregations in the diocese the rich possibilities of heeding the call to ministry for all believers and thus revitalizing their congregational life.
